Analytiqa: Logistics Bulletin: Friday 19th January

01-22-2007 11:50 AM CET | Logistics & Transport

Press release from: Analytiqa

This week's Logistics Bulletin reports on M&A activity, global expansion strategies, contract wins, DC developments and legislative issues from around the globe. The week's events were dominated, however, by the news that CEVA Logistics (formerly TNT Logistics) has appointed John Pattullo as Chief Executive Officer, once his transition from Chief Operating Officer of the EMEA division of DHL Exel Supply Chain has been completed.

In financial news, Geodis has reported a solid performance for 2006, with revenues rising by 5.3%, Kuehne + Nagel is expanding operations in Japan and in Europe is extending cooperation with DB Logistics.

With green logistics further up the agenda for many supply chain operators in 2007, as DHL turns to natural gas vehicles for its express deliveries, the UK's Freight Transport Association is describing London's plans to enforce a low emissions zone as "nothing short of a shambles, (and) are grossly unfair." With a significant impact on all operator's fleet investment, and beyond, Analytiqa has released its latest research analysing City approaches to logistics across both Eastern and Western Europe. The report provides understanding of City strategies and forthcoming policies on emission zones, access controls, road charging and urban freight schemes. For more information, click here

Urban Transport Policy in Europe: Meeting City Demands for Green Logistics

New Research from Analytiqa

Urban Transport Policy in Europe: Meeting City Demands for Green Logistics takes an in-depth look at the current initiatives and legislation currently being planned and implemented across twenty cities in twelve European countries across both West and Eastern Europe.

The issues addressed are those that will have the greatest impact on providers working within the express, logistics or supply chain arena. It is critical that hauliers, courier and express, logistics and distribution companies across all sectors understand and account for changes in their operational environment.

This report will assist decision makers within these organisations to ensure correct future investment into vehicles, resources, strategies and services that are not only compliant with future environmental legislation (Euro 4, Euro IV, Euro 5, Euro V, etc) and developments, but more importantly, are considered and hence able to take full advantage of some of the opportunities the future, 'greener', market will provide.

FTA say Transport for London's low emission zone a shambles

17 January - "Plans to enforce the LEZ are nothing short of a shambles, are grossly unfair"

The UK’s Freight Transport Association (FTA) has released a statement condemning a plan to introduce a Low Emission Zone regarding the operation of lorries within the M25 in London. The plan, say the FTA, is very seriously flawed.

The plan will not improve air quality, will not detect offending vehicles, will penalise innocent vehicles, and will place very substantial and unfair costs on London industry, says the FTA.

The FTA said that the plan to retro-fit older vehicles with equipment designed to reduce emissions, and thus exempt them from the scheme, would not work. Extensive operations of vehicles fitted with the conversion kit had now proven that although the kit worked over longer trunking journeys, it was unsuitable for the stop/start nature of work in a city and, as such, many conversion kits have now been removed.

Similarly, as the scheme is designed at present, enforcement would not be able to identify which vehicles first registered in 2001 were fitted with Euro 3 engines and would therefore be permitted to operate, and which vehicles were fitted with Euro 2 engines and would not be permitted to operate without paying a fee of £200 or a £1000 fine. Furthermore it seems that some of the pre Euro 3 vehicles will be able to operate in London because they already meet the particulate standards without modification.

The FTA go on to say that as far as NOx is concerned, the Mayor’s strategy “could not be more misguided”. According to the FTA, a Euro 1 truck that could be modified to comply with the proposed scheme will produce four times as much NOx as a comparable Euro 5 truck available today. That same Euro 5 truck will produce only one-fifth of the particulates that are set out in the LEZ proposals.

Transport for London also seems, according to the FTA, to have no way of identifying whether any of the large number of foreign vehicles entering London every day are, or are not, up to the required standard.

FTA’s Head of Policy for London and the South East, Gordon Telling said, ‘We all seek cleaner air in London and the steady introduction of new engine technology for goods vehicles will ensure that, with or without the TfL Low Emission Zone, by 2015 practically all vehicles will, in any event, be operating with engines that more than meet the required standards. In the meantime TfL plans to enforce the LEZ are nothing short of a shambles, are grossly unfair, and will not produce an air quality improvement.

Under the present plans it seems that many vehicles which meet the right standards will be subject to a charge or a fine, while many that fail to will not attract any charge at all.”

The FTA argues that the most sensible way of enforcing any Low Emission Zone would be based on the age of the vehicle, with a strong package of incentives for cleaner trucks.
